Whether you have a food blog, a travel blog, or your blog is a small part of your website, it’s important to try and increase its traffic. Whatever your website’s niche, there is an audience for you just waiting for you to invest in your Instagram strategy. Boost your blog’s website traffic with these key tips:
Use the “link in bio.”
While you can only have one link in your Instagram bio at one time, it’s hard to keep up with switching it out every time you post a new blog. Not only is this a tedious process, but it takes potential clicks away from previous posts and limits the number of eyes on your blog.
There are multiple different “link in bio” tools you can utilize in your bio, allowing you to have multiple different website destinations. You can customize the buttons or have the link mimic your Instagram feed allowing your visitors to find blogs even easier.

Include a clear “call-to-action.”
Simply including the link to your blog is not enough. You want to entice your audience to actually go there and click on the link to find your posts. Having a clear call to action on your posts, stories, or Reels can help drive traffic and boost your engagement.
Call-outs, on-screen text, and enticing copy are all simple ways to integrate into your strategy. Try out one at a time for different posts to see what works best with your audience.
Share your posts on stories.
With the link sticker being rolled out to all Instagram users, Stories has become a simple way to drive additional traffic to your blog. Make sure you’re creating as much attention to this sticker as possible to really get your traffic up. Do this by creating customizable story templates or simply using gifs for attention.
Another great tip is to save your stories to your highlights. Organize your highlights around your content to help visitors find what they’re looking for and to make your posts accessible after they disappear.
Tease content in the captions
Use the captions to convince your audience they need to know more. Start with an interesting snippet, and invite them to the link in your bio. Don’t give away all of your content secrets in the post itself or the caption.
Try writing out all of your captions in advance, so you’re able to tweak them as needed.
You’re going to hear about video content a lot, as Instagram is prioritizing Reels and video content more than ever. It’s important for your strategy to plan out your promotional content to play into what Instagram wants to see.
